California Real Estate Sales Agents, Brokers, And Appraisers License Defense Attorney

Defending A Real Estate Professional’s License

At the Law Office of Nicole Irmer, we understand how stressful it can be for a Real Estate Professional to be accused of unfair dealings or another offense that may affect their ability to run a business and practice their chosen profession.

Defense Attorney, Nicole Irmer, is dedicated to protecting the careers and the livelihoods of Real Estate Licensees who are under investigation or may already have an Accusation filed against them by the California Bureau of Real Estate (BRE), formerly the Department of Real Estate (DRE). If your career is threatened because of a looming disciplinary action, then don’t delay in contacting an experienced licensing defense attorney at (619) 237-6130.

The BRE Enforcement section is responsible for investigating misconduct allegedly committed by Agents, Brokers, and Appraisers in addition to license Applicants.  The most commonly pursued grounds for discipline include the following violations:

  • Trust Fund Record Keeping
  • Trust Fund Shortage
  • Failure to Supervise a Sponsored Salesperson
  • Unlicensed Activity
  • Misrepresentation
  • Criminal Conviction after being licensed
  • Failure to disclose a criminal conviction/arrest within the applicable time period

BRE investigations may be initiated by a BRE Investigator contacting the Licensee by a letter of complaint and inquiry, or the BRE may conduct the investigation covertly if it has reason to believe contacting the Licensee will inhibit the investigation. If you are contacted by the BRE Investigator, cooperation will be important but only after seeking advice and representation from an attorney experienced in this area of law.

If the Enforcement section of the BRE determines that a Licensee violated Real Estate License Law, then the BRE may impose sanctions such as a Public or Private Reprimand, Administrative Fine, License Probation, Suspension or Revocation, and Civil or Criminal Penalties. However, you are entitled to challenge the Accusation or Denial of License with a Contested Hearing before the Office of Administrative Hearings (OAH).
